Tonight I am a little frustrated. I was all excited about another installment of the always suspense-filled "what's in Sugar's pocket" game, when, for some reason , my camera is acting up. Ok, I am sure it was user error, but still. Ugh! I got this really cool crystal out of his school uniform short I was washing tonight. It is like one of those rocks that you break open and inside is all these sparkly crystals. (they are called geodes, fyi) Well, he is pretty fascinated by rocks and fossils, so I guess he decided this one was a keeper and stuffed it in his pocket. Unfortunately I can't share it with you because my camera is all goofy.
I have always wanted to be a great photographer. (...add that to the list!) Some say I am OK. I do have an eye for design but I just have never had the time to master the f stops and aperture and shutter speed... . Frankly, I find it all very confusing so I am setting that on my "someday" shelf for now. So I am using this adorable little point and shoot my husband got me. (pink, of course) It is tiny it fits in my pocket...PERFECT for a busy mom who is always trying to juggle kids WHILE still snapping every moment I can. It has been great until about a week or two ago. Suddenly every breath I take makes the focus all blurry. It is weird, like I am having tremors or something. (I am not.) If there are any camera buffs out there who know which button the baby pushed, just leave me a comment! lol
Well, Let me see if I can find a picture of a crystal that is SIMILAR to the one in Sugar's pocket.
Here is a geode like the one he must have cracked open. He did not have the full rock in there, just a hunk of crystal. Something more like this next picture except that these are actually made out of soap. How cute is that! Maybe soap like this would get a boy like Sugar to wash! LOL
Well, this weekend Sugar also caught a turtle, but luckily (?? did I just say that?) he pulled on a pair of his sisters shorts that had no pockets, so there was no where to store stuff. Anyway, after he found the turtle, he and I went for a walk and he wanted to me to help him look around in case there was another one. He said this was a good time to look since it was turtle mating season. Why does that matter? I asked. He told me that the turtles were wandering around all over looking for a mate. So they can lay eggs. Hmmm. I asked if they had like a turtle meeting place where they could all go to meet up and find a husband or wife, but he said not really.
That kids cracks me up! We only found the one turtle, who has since been sent back into the wild to find a husband or wife. But Josh spent another good hour observing the cricket the turtle declined to eat.
That's all for tonight. Have a good one!
